When you give yourself the gift of quietly believing in yourself, you’ll love yourself.

Rosemary Cauli Mash with Ghee

Hi. How have you been? Me…oh I’m good. Life has just been pretty “lifey” lately, and most of the time I wonder why at the end of the day we’re still standing, but we are! I miss blogging so much and think about posts in my head daily. I am re-committing myself to regular blogging and my gorgeous-not-yet-used-enough, kitchen! Also it’s going to help keep me busy as the Minnesota winter is quickly approaching and that’s new for me since 2002 – ah!

I was devastated when Trader Joe’s announced that they couldn’t keep up with demand for the organic riced cauliflower, just after I’d discovered how awesome it was. In it’s absence I happened to be at Super Target and notice that Green Giant also has a “cauliflower crumbles” product (only ingredient, cauliflower). I bought 6 bags. Ha! I think at this point Trader Joe’s should be stocked and ready to go, but Super Target is much closer to me :-) Seriously versatile and have made all sorts of good stuff, including rosemary cauli mash with ghee!

Rosemary Cauli Mash with Ghee

  • 1 bag cauli crumbles/riced cauli
  • Pastured/organic ghee
  • Bruised/crushed rosemary
  • Salt/pepper

Steam the cauli until soft. I followed the directions on the back of the bag and added a little extra time so it’d be extra soft/easy to mash. Once steamed I dumped crumbles into a bowl and added ghee (however much you prefer, it’s pretty rich…), bruised/crushed rosemary and salt and pepper. Mash until the mixture has the consistency you prefer (more ghee = creamier). Takes about 5-7 minutes and reheats very well!


Thursday Thoughts

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

–Leo Tolstoy

One of the books I’m reading right now is titled Make the Most of You, by Patrick Lindsay. Each page has a brief paragraph related to a specific topic with a quote below it, here’s the paragraph related to the quote above:

Seek Change from Within

It’s laudable to try to change the world. But sometimes we chose the wrong starting point. Start by looking within. See if the problem is rooted within you. If so, that’s where the change should begin. Then your commitment will be unshakable.
